Christine Elliott sat back in her chair next to Tim Hudak in the legislature Tuesday.

This is the first time the Deputy Progressive Conservative leader has been back to Queen's Park since the death of her husband, former federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, almost three weeks ago.

MPPs welcomed her back with a standing ovation at the start of Question Period.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says Elliott's strength is remarkable. She says it's wonderful to have her back.

Flaherty died suddenly at his Ottawa home. He was 64.
